All Eyes On... Ribbon

Hi, everyone! Hope you're all having a wonderful Father's Day! :)

I created this card for this month's All Eyes On feature over at the WPlus9 blog. This month the team is focusing on ribbon, and some of the fun ways to use it on a card. The only catch? No regular bows! I love, love, love ruffled ribbon. It's a super easy technique, but it really adds so much.

In my opinion, there is no right or wrong way to create ruffles, and all you really need is a strong, but forgiving adhesive. I ♥ Scor-Tape! Not only will it hold onto your ruffles and keep them from popping off the card base once you're finished, if you make a mistake while you're laying the ribbon down you can easily pull up a section and try again. LOL, ask me how I know... *wink*

Enjoy your day, friends!

  • Create 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" green card base and stamp with woodgrain background.
  • Stamp white tile image onto yellow layer, then stamp with sentiment before adhering to card front.
  • Stamp leaf and butterfly images, then cut out and adhere to card base with pop dots.
  • Apply strip of Scor-Tape to card front, then ruffle ribbon.
